Y'all I cannot be home alone! I'm seeing/hearing stuff every two seconds because of T and VS and can't just turn on music because of H. Ahh! Jun 4, 2020 at 7:17 AM

      Home alone and heard a door open! You know how hard it is to listen for an intruder when your tinnitus is so loud!? Didn't find anyone tho

      Oh & the nasal spray came today. Think I'm allergic to it because it burned like hell &when it dripped down my throat it caused major bumps

      Dinner in my room alone, 31 dB earmuffs (family in other rooms), completely mute. No migraine. This is not good. The H is separate.

        Are you doing this because in the past you got a spike when they were in the nearby rooms and you weren't wearing your muffs? This lasted at most an hour, right? You are spending most of your time at home Not wearing muffs, right?

        Most of the time I’m not this disabled, but I got bad noise exposure
        I wear the muffs most of the time when I’m out of my room. Usually I’m good without then in there, except when it’s this bad

      I just hope after I get the migraines under control the H stops. Suck if they're not related, but I was born with ear problems (4/4)

        H goes away a lot more often (and faster!) than T. Chances are that in a year or two you will be over H.

        Ok, well apparently I need to crawl out of my hole of depression that prevents me from doing any research at all (I fell into it quite a while ago - I couldn't handle the emotional toll of not being able to find solutions to fix my ears) and look into recovery times.
        Thanks :x

        @Tavia R do they know why you have migraines? Have the checked for raised pressure in your head? Probably worth it. X

        I haven't heard about raised pressure? If anything, my doctors keep getting after me to eat more salt and guzzle water, I have low blood pressure and get dizzy because of it. Thanks for the input though :D

        @Tavia R check it out. Honestly. I didn't even know it was a thing. They done a ctv scan where they put dye in your body and check for blockages. Anyway it showed raised pressure in my head. Have you had a scan yet? X
